A great deal has been written about primates; however few volumes have focused on an entire community of sympatric monkeys at a single site. Drawing upon diverse sets of data, the authors provide a multi-thematic case study of the entire monkey community of the Tai forest (Ivory Coast). Much of the book explores how the seven monkey species have adapted to hunting pressures from chimpanzees, leopards, crowned eagles and humans. Other themes covered include feeding ecology, social behaviour, positional behaviour and habitat use, vocal communication and conservation. Colour photographs of all species are provided, showing the major behavioural characteristics of each, as little is known about these West African monkeys. This scientifically important volume will be of interest to a broad audience including primatologists, functional anatomists, psychologists, and behavioural ecologists.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Taking a well-established evolutionary theory and applying it to an African primate community, McGraw and colleagues...present a fantastic synthesis of more than 15 years of pimatological research. This volume offers a wealth of information. Because such long-term data rarely exist on a single population of primates, let alone an entire community, the book will be a welcome addition to any primate behaviorist's library." Andrea L. Baden, Stony Brook University Evolutionary Anthropology, 2007
"Summarizing the results of 15 years of research on these Tai forest monkeys, the editors provide insight into the behavior s of the entire monkey community as a function of habitat, predators, food, and other group members and neighbors. ... This collection of scientific works sheds light on these monkeys and the challenges they face, both natural and manmade." - Wildlife Activist
"Having all of these data compiled into a format for easy comparison is extremely useful. ... the volume contains a plethora of information that could potentially be used to improve the conservation status of these species." - Toni Lyn Morelli, Ecology
